How can I raise my girls right?

I have two girls both under the age of five. I don't wanna say the wrong things to them. I'm worried that anything I say, will be taking personally, basically because I take everything personal. How should I play with them? How can I give them confidence? Please don't be rude. I'm just asking for some tips. Thanks.

  • Get down to eye level. so they don't think you are talking down to them. Talk o them the way you want them to talk to you. I hope this helped.

  • No mom is perfect, you are going to say the wrong things sometimes, do the wrong things sometimes. Try to set a good example by being the person you want them to emulate. Play with them. Its hard to say the wrong thing when you are sitting down and reading a story. Praise them for their good deeds, learning and positive things, give lots of hugs, say I love you, encourage please and thank you and don't be afraid to be a kid and play yourself. Kids learn and bond with you over kicking the ball around, playing playdough, making cookies or cuddling up to a good movie. What did you love as a child? Relive those positive memories with them!
